(en) afed.cz: A3: Too much anti-communism... [machine translation]

Date Sat, 3 Aug 2019 11:14:05 +0300

The imagined suffering conceals the real and the old scarecrows conceal the iniquities of today. Download, print and distribute the July issue of the A3 wall paper! ---- ... And too little anti-capitalism. A more concise slogan for the past thirty years of local political-power manipulation would hardly be found. Tragicomically, she completed this year's holiday media theme - Mrs. Sosnarová's false gulag victim. ---- This lady decided in 2002 to give lectures on how she had been imprisoned in a Soviet camp for almost twenty years since the end of the war. Her drastic narrative was also given a book form, and it is going to be sold by the inmate inmates of the local bourgeois democracy of all ages. But anti-Communist history experts from an institution that shapes public opinion with well-chosen topics from the past have a problem: they find that this lady has never been to the gulag. It is great that they are moving to the horrors of communist repression, but they also mind that he is lying like printing.

They seek appropriate justifications for her behavior. On the one hand, they compare it to the false victims of the Holocaust, who have sincerely become the victims of childhood traumas, which would be right for Mrs. Sosnarová, because Russia's mother passed through the Czech Republic as an authentic criminal in the wars. she was a Gestapo confident, but after the war she preferred to leave with her children to her native country. On the other hand, there is a less excusable explanation: since 2002 it has been possible to claim compensation for Communist injustice and Mrs Sosnarová would be entitled to three million crowns.

It doesn't really matter if the lady is out of herself or is beneficial. Her "cause" only grotesquely completes three decades of compulsory anti-communism. And the model and prototype of this attitude is flexible Andrej Babiš, who bluntly said that before 1989 he joined the Communist Party because it paid off. Just under communism he was a communist and under capitalism he was a capitalist and an anti-communist. So now he adds that this party should have been banned after '89.

Why? Well, because communism has been responsible for everything for thirty years. Even for the fact that today people do not have a chance to decent and affordable housing, quality food, or perhaps a longer journey by train.

The Bolshevik regime was worth two things and committed many atrocities. But inventing false stories of suffering will not lead to anything other than the fact that even the real ones will ultimately not be trusted. Nor can a group of people make themselves or their ancestors suffer a defensive shield against any criticism and justification for their policies, however disgusting and causing suffering to others. One example is the state of Israel, which exploits the suffering of the Jews during the Nazi rampage to eliminate any criticism of its racist colonial-settler policy against the indigenous people of Palestine.

In our country, anti-communism, as an uncritical ideological mantra, has become a shield for the "building" of real capitalism, a system where only those who have sharper elbows, more flexible spines, and a stomach that spends almost everything. For so long, we were waving a scarecrow of communism until we wore ourselves to the point where hundreds of thousands of people, including children, were held by bailiffs and hundreds of thousands of others were struggling to fall into poverty. We wandered to a time when social differences were so enormous that billionaires were "buying" the prolongation of their power plants at the expense of the health of others, or at the expense of nature turning rapeseed mines into their growing profits. And people work hard and work hard and none of it. At the anti-Sabbath demonstrations, they learn nonsense that the Communists are still responsible for their condition today. From open and hidden fascists à la Vandas, Okamura, Klaus, Zeman and Foldyna will then learn another nonsense that their problems are caused by refugees, gypsies, unemployed, feminists and more.

But will we continue to feed nonsense, or will we see how things really are? Then we will see that the Communists are long pasture and that the poorest people really don't take anything from our pockets. Then we will see that the social wealth in which we work has been happily flowing into the pockets of billionaires in tax havens for decades.

Would it not help a bit of anti-capitalism that would make it clear that alternating the same creatures in power would not solve anything?
